When the new city centre for Waddinxveen was designed, the Christmas decoration and lighting devices were already an integral part of the planning – both a novelty and a challenge for the light designers of MK Illumination! The owner of Gouweplein chose the traditional style of Christmas decorations as a counterpoint to the modern construction. The logo of the city centre – a diagonally running heart – became the dominant object of the attractive light garlands strung across the streets. The new, biodegradable material of these sparkling hearts guarantees the highest sustainability. In early 2016 a so-called Christmas Ball filled with balls of light was added as an eye-catcher for the centre.
